As you probably know, our entire sanctuary has been in lockdown here in South Africa since 26 March … more than three months – and counting. While we’re managing to make do with fewer helping hands by working harder and longer, we can’t manage without food for our animals.
It costs around $90 or R1,400 every month to feed one animal at Panthera Africa – and 28 animals in our care, you can imagine how that quickly adds up. I’m hoping you’ll reach out to our big cats today, because they urgently need your help.
Usually, our volunteer programme and the educational visits we host help to raise funds towards our total food bill. But we lost that with lockdown – which is why your kindness now will go a long way. Please will you support the animals through this tough time? Whether you help for two weeks through a gift of $45 (R700) – or even one week, at $22 (R350) – whatever you can donate now will help put food into an animal’s belly!
All the big cats say a roaring thank you in advance for loving them enough to help. If you’re able to gift a whole month’s worth of feeding – at R1,400 ($90, £70 or €80 including transfer fees), please let us know which animal you’d like to support. We’ll be sure to send you a picture of them enjoying a big, meaty bone with their meal! You can meet all the cats here.
